You should not write the letter and plead guilty. What you should do is find a local traffic attorney to represent your daughter in this matter. Typically, depending on where you live, attorneys charge around $75-$100 to represent someone in a traffic case. He would be able to address the failure to answer the summons. The attorney also (depending on your daughter's driving record) may be able to get the ticket dismissed or have adjudication withheld and leave her only responsible for court costs.
If she pleads guilty, she will get the points on her license and the insurance will go up. She would be better off electing to go to traffic school as this gets rid of the points.
